Ocean Spray Craisins Recalled Due to Metal Fragments

three bags of Ocean Spray Dried CranberriesThis past weekend, Ocean Spray voluntarily recalled some of its Original Flavor Craisins Dried Cranberries, because some lots were found to contain hair-like fragments of metal. The recall includes Craisins sold in five-ounce, 10-ounce, 48-ounce packages and 10-pound bulk packages. No other Ocean Spray products are affected.

However, the metal pieces do not appear to pose a serious problem to consumers, as the FDA states that the recalled products are unlikely to cause injury and that the measure was taken “out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our consumers.”

Below is a list of the recalled products and their associated “Best By” dates. Only dates followed by the letter “M” are affected.
